    I finally got around to finishing my first minor mod project. Colors are a satin purple base coat with a dry bushing of metalic purple over that. Then finished with some orange highlights, it just needs a reprolabel decepticon symbol to call it finished

    I've had this as a WIP for a couple months now, never can get around to painting him. I soon as I picked up a second TW, this mold screamed Energon Galvs. I hope mine can turn out this good, cheers mate!:thumb

    Not knocking against this, but the sea of purple is too much. otherwise a good idea.

    Hmmmmm, the paint looks kinda thick on the chest, but the idea is absolutely awesome.

    actually its not that its thick i need to go back and sand it again it again it didn't go on as well as i would have liked it to and when i sanded the chest it ended really too rough i think, in the same breath its going to be a contest prize on my youtube channel so who knows if i'll fix all the issues or not.

    Oh, I see. Well good luck with the contest. When the chest is fixed, it'll be even more awesome than it already is.:popcorn :thumbs2:

    great idea and works well! just the paint...
    needs another color to contrast.
    should have gotten a more g1 color scheme. but still great idea and came out well

    Yeah, I definitely like the concept here, even if his little friend isn't so little by comparison. If anything, I think that works, especially given that Galvatron & Megatron always had very large weapons.

    However like it's been brought up, the chest really seems to take away from the figure itself, especially since there's quite a lot of unused canvass.

    I'm quite surprised how well this works... Replace the nosecone drone with an orange cannon and he could also make a good IDW Galvatron...
